Yes: you should consider reading error-messages. What does

error: Failed dependencies:
         libtcl8.3.so is needed by tkinter-2.2.2-26.i386
         libtix8.1.8.3.so is needed by tkinter-2.2.2-26.i386
         libtk8.3.so is needed by tkinter-2.2.2-26.i386

Small hint: if you install something that depends on something else, you
need to .... the missing dependency first. Fill in the dots...
